Wanting to improve your experience as a customer and lessen our waste as a company, we now offer 'Aura' Facial oil refills with a metal cap instead of a plastic dropper. When you purchase your first bottle of Aura ultralight weight daily facial oil, we provide you with a glass dropper with a plastic top. The next time you purchase a 1oz bottle of Aura you can opt for the glass bottle with metal cap.
Why did we chose a metal cap with an aluminum foil lining?
The benefits of metal recycling: Aside from the diversion of material from landfills, other important benefits of metal recycling versus the creation of virgin metal include a reduction in energy consumption as well as in the use of other materials. For example recycled aluminum requires 95 percent less energy, while copper needs 90 percent less, and steel 56 percent less. Source
The metal caps can be recycled. The recommended way to recycle small metal caps is as follows: Place these bottle caps in an aluminum soup can until it is half full. Then, crimp the top of the can so that the bottle caps are trapped.
Aluminum itself is one of the most recyclable — and indeed, one of the most recycled — materials around. According to the Aluminum Association, nearly 75 percent of all the aluminum produced in the US is still in use today, thanks to recycling efforts and the fact that it can be recycled again and again without its quality diminishing. To recycle the aluminum lining of the cap, please remove and clean before recycling it.
The metal cap option is also available on first time purchases of the item and only available online at the moment. If you live in Wilmington and would like to know how you can purchase one please contact us directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
